7 Awesome WordPress Plugins To Automatically Share Your Content To Social Media

Driving with Social Media
Written by Connor Douglas

If you have a WordPress blog or website, you should consider trying one or more of the plugins listed below, which will be very useful in sharing content with social media:

1. MailChimp Social – If you’re looking for a free plugin to share your blog content with Twitter and Facebook, this is a good option for you. It automatically converts Twitter and Facebook contents back to your initial post, plus you can also use multiple accounts. MailChimp doesn’t interface with any other social media sites, but that’s not a problem if you only use Facebook or Twitter. A premium version which is not free adds eCommerce 360 integration, multiple AJAX forms, detailed statistics, additional options for styling forms, and email notifications.

2. Pinterest Automatic Pin WordPress Plugin – This plugin is absolutely essential if you routinely pin a large quantity of images from your posts on Pinterest. Whenever a post is published, every single image is pinned without fail to your Pinterest account. Although this plugin is not free, the one-time purchase price of $16 allows you to pin from both thumbnails and featured images, schedule or delay pins, the capability to pin unlimited images, and fast integration with WooCommerce.

3. WordPress to Twitter – Here’s a plugin aimed specifically at those people who first post to WordPress, and second, add a notification about their new post directly to their Twitter account. The free version of this plugin automates this process for you, and at the same time sends out an automatic customizable Tweet linking to the new post immediately upon publication. It also converts automatically your post tags to hashtags, supports Google Analytics and shortens URLs. The Pro paid version adds the capability to schedule or delay Tweets, automatically attaches images to them, and also schedules Tweets for previously published posts.

4. CoScheduleCoSchedule is the ultimate all-in-one calendar that uses one simple interface to take care of both blog posts and social media at the same time. You’ll be able to cross-post and reschedule posts with an easy drag-and-drop feature, and multiple users will like the team management element. This version is free, and gives you all basic functionality, but you’ll be limited to just 5 different accounts. The paid version of this plugin adds support for extra social networks and extra team members.

5. HYPESocial Buffer – This plugin has a feature-rich panel which lets you manage both your blog or website and every one of your social media accounts from just one interface in WordPress. It has the additional functionality of automatic URL shortening and custom scheduling. Get the “small business” license if you want support for 2 more sites, or the “agency” license to open it up to an infinite number of sites. If you just have one site, get the paid “personal” license, which covers one site for one year.

6. AccessPress Social AutoPost -There isn’t a free version of this plugin, but a one-time fee of $20 will allow you to link up with infinite Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Tumblr accounts. This fee is less expensive than the majority of other plugins of this kind.

7. Juicer – Juicer automatically sorts all posts chronologically from attached social media accounts. You’ll have full functionality with the free version, but you’ll have to publicly display a Juicer watermark, and your feed will be limited to one update an hour.
